Halloween Safety Tips for 2020 🎃

👻Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

🎃Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

👻Carry a flashlight, glow sticks or have some type of reflective tape on so that you can be easily seen.

🎃Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible.

👻Don’t dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

🎃Drive Safely! Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.

👻Inspect all candy before you eat any!

😷Use cloth face coverings over your nose and mouth in addition to your Halloween mask!

🎃Stay within your household group and wait until other trick-or-treaters have left the door before you approach. Don't forget to social distance.

👻Remember that not everyone will be participating this year so, if the porch light is off or the house is dark let’s respect the homeowners privacy.

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween Everyone! 👻🎃

Be Empowered! Parents Hold the Keys to Teen Driving Success.
Talk to Your Teen about the Importance of Driving Safety
During National Teen Driver Safety Week!

Parenting is no easy task, and parenting teenagers comes with its own unique set of challenges. During National Teen Driver Safety Week October 18-24, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is teaming up with Plainsboro Police Department to help empower parents to discuss the importance of driving safety with their young drivers. The week is a perfect time to begin — and continue — this conversation, and to remind parents not to hand over the car keys until their teen knows the rules of the road.

For more information about National Teen Driver Safety Week and to learn safe driving tips to share with your teens, visit www.nhtsa.gov/road-safety/teen-driving.

NJ Human Services is making the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone available for free September 24th to 26th at participating pharmacies throughout New Jersey.

The distribution is part of the Murphy Administration’s continued effort to combat the opioid crisis. New Jerseyans will be able to visit participating pharmacies and anonymously obtain naloxone for free without a prescription or an appointment. Each naloxone pack contains two doses.

Naloxone can reverse overdoses from opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain.

Those who obtain naloxone will also be given information regarding addiction treatment and recovery through Reach NJ, a 24-hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week addictions hotline where people who have Substance Use Disorder (SUD) or friends and family of people with SUD can get immediate assistance and support from live, New Jersey-based, trained addiction counselors.

An individual who calls the program’s toll-free number, 844-ReachNJ (732-2465), will reach a live staff member who will help connect you to treatment.
